Actress, model and all-round gorgeous lady Kelly Brook has teamed up with high street favourite New Look to bring us a collection of lingerie just in time for Valentine’s Day. The collection has a feminine feel with soft pastel colours, pleats and lace. Kelly, a model noted for her curves, sighted vintage pieces as an inspiration for her collection and the influence is clear in the lace trimmed French knickers which Kelly says “flatter us curvy girls”, high waistlines and detailed suspender belts at the forefront of her collection.
Starting from £5.99 for briefs and thongs, £7.99 for suspender belts and £12.99 for bras, there’s no argument that Kelly’s collection is a budget safe option for women in search of something a little bit special. There is also a gorgeous printed kimono on sale for £24.99. Not only is it wallet safe, but the collection is also friendlier than most high street stores in catering for women with bigger bust sizes. The bras in Kelly’s collection are available in up to a 36F. Kelly says of the collection “’I have the whole collection I’ve designed for New Look… it’s so comfortable to wear and looks super-sexy.”
The collection also plays into SS12 trends, as confirmed by top blog Who What Wear who yesterday put together this collection of “Angelic Underthings” showing that feminine and vintage is key for lingerie this season. Kelly’s nod to past is just one interpretation of the trend for all things vintage, but it’s clear that many designers around the world (notably Calvin Klein and Julianna Rae) are taking inspiration from the glamour of times gone by.
Kelly Brook Lingerie for New Look is available online now. You can view the whole collection here at the New Look website. Better still, buy now and you can have your order in time for Valentine’s Day.
